Proof that there has been some knitting...

Even though I haven't posted much knitted items recently, I have been knitting, just not as much as usual. I find that usually I don't knit as much during the summer, as I get more social for some reason(or maybe people have more parties).


I have completed my friend Nathalie's baby blanket, but forgot to take a picture of it for my blog before giving it to her. I'll take one next time I see her. I still have enough of that yarn to also make a sweater for the baby, along with a hat and booties, and would still have yarn.


I had bought this Apple Laine yarn called "Eye Candy" this spring and finally got around to make a pair of socks. It's a great sock yarn, and I really enjoy knitting it. It has a nice sheen to it, and the sheen stays even after the socks have been washed.


This is another pair that I completed last week. It's from the Knit Picks discontinued "Parade" line (if not discontinued, I didn't find it in the sock yarn section where it used to be). These are way too big on my little feet, but will fit my friend perfectly and keep her arthritic toes warm. I just can't wait to send them to her, as she really appreciates and cherished any handmade gifts that come her way.
Wishing you all a nice week...

Your socks look great! It's pretty hot out here too so I understand that knitting is not that comfortable right now. Summer is a great time to enjoy other activitys. Time enough for the knitting when it gets colder :-)

i am insanely behind on your blog again! i hope you are doing well!!! those socks in parade look very much like some discontinued simple stripes or whatever it was called in autumn... i haven't knit it yet, but i think that's it... they came out super cute, love the striping and love the applelaine!
